The Making of Forest in a Box – Design and Make

The Brief

Design a hands-on three dimensional wood based resource that encourages students to investigate wood and innovation in design. The resource will be provided to school students following a field experience in a local forest. It will connect with a resource package that considers forest systems, management as well as wood production and design. The resource should be open-ended and promote students’ creativity and imaginations. Students will be asked to sequence their design from a play phase to planning and evaluating with the Design Thinking Process.
